These two stone markers stand high above the narrow entrance to Porthgain harbour, which might otherwise be difficult to spot from the sea.
The nearer (east) marker is circular in cross-section whereas the further one is square. I confess that I do not really see much point in this: from a distance out at sea it would be difficult to distinguish the cross-section, and once you have identified both markers you know that you want to navigate between them!
